Jameela Jamil has issued yet another statement addressing continued speculation surrounding her allegedly fabricating a number of health issues due to Munchausen syndrome.
Though both Jamil and boyfriend James Blake already refuted writer Tracie Egan Morrissey's viral accusations last week, the actress is once again taking to Instagram to hit back against all the "lies and conspiracy theories."
Yesterday, Jamil doubled down on her initial response in the lengthy post, saying that she's "had to fight like a fucking dog this week against false accusations, people framing my words, and deliberately taking them out of context, trying to discredit my entire integrity, and going after disabled members of my family."
After questioning why this was happening, Jamil went on to insist that she had never lied to the media given that she knows "how permanent the internet is" and "how much our media loves to portray women as liars and hysterics."
"I always own up to any mistake I make. I never hide from it. I publicly learn from my mistakes with other people joining me, so we can grow as a community," she said. That said, Jamil added that she wouldn't let the accusations "get in my way," as she has "work to do."
"At least we've started a huge mainstream conversation about invisible illness/chronic illness and the mockery and disbelief that comes with what is already a near impossible existence. So something good always comes of a shit storm," she said, later addressing those who reached out with "similar stories of gaslighting you've all faced."
"I'm so sorry. That's so painful," she wrote, before concluding, "But we are in this shit together, and nobody can stop us as one, we just have to not let them form cracks in our wall."
